Huawei Still Under Test

I have already given some hints of what this test is all about.

And sad to say, Canada’s marks are sliding.

The situation is getting out of hand.

Canada’s position is untenable.

Canada’s rule of law is unenforceable in China.

China has its own rule of law.

It is enforceable because it applies to China, within China.

Chinese justice is as fast as judge Roy Bean’s.

Canada’s  lady justice procrastinates.

Blindfolded  she may be, but she lets the scale hang on a hook

because she is too lazy to hold it up.

I have provided here before

 two suggestions as to how to de-escalate the situation.

This is the third suggestion

and it may appeal to the oriental heart,

First, unshackle Meng Wanzhou of all restraints and alerts.

Next, deliver her lock, stock and barrel

to the Chinese Ambassador to Canada.

Then, return her passport and provide her with a plane ticket to Beijing.

Have the Chinese Ambassador vouch for her return to Canada

to face the extradition trial.

It will still be the responsibility of Canada

to abide by the extradition treaty with the US.

And not to worry, Meng Wanzhou will be back to face trial.

I will bet my pair*  that she will.

She is, in fact, of the wealthy class.

By the way,

the rule of War on Drugs is followed to the letter by the Chinese.

They actually went to war against opium exports to China.

Remember the Opium War?

Schellenberg’s  punishment  of 15  years  in prison

was actually too light if only to follow the Chinese rule of law

and was laid down as a boon to the country of Canada.

but now, no more boons.

National Emergency?

Declaring a national emergency

from a situation of his own making 

would be the most spectacular goof Trump would ever make.

It would be a media-cre effort to correct things.

I agree that the Border Wall is essential

but not so much as that the lack of it would be

tantamount to danger to national security.

This phrase “national security” has been used by Trump

to scare the Americans that what he dictates should be the law.

Well, it did not work when he declared that Canadians are a

risk to the national security of the United States.

HAH!

Anyway, without the Border Wall, the Mexicans

and the other latinos do not constitute aggressors.

Neither is there an impending invasion.

Sneaking through the border is plain and simple TRESPASSING..

What he could have done now to remedy the situation

is to accept what the Congress offers now

on the condition that Congress considers the wall

to be essential and that he be allowed to raise more money

from somewhere else.

And then he can use his astounding ingenuity to raise money.

That is, after he reopens the government services (drat it!)

Indigenous Nuisance

In all the time I have lived in Canada

I have seen and heard about the indigenous peoples of this country

disrupt the government and business processes

by protests, roadblocks, and rallies.

These events happen with astounding regularity

and woeful consequences

so much so that the sympathy that they received

has been turned to adverse criticism of these peoples.

Now before you start ganging up on me

think of it this way—-

These Indians, bless their survivor efforts,

do spend a lot of time organizing and participating in these

disruptive events to give the implication that they

actually do not work for a living.

The more ugly implication is that they complain about something

when in truth they are asking for something else. 

The point I would like to make is that these Indians

should give something back to Canada

as gratitude for the heavy handouts that they

have received from the working peoples of Canada.

Laws, Treaties, Agreements, Constitution and all that such

do not actually apply to this situation.

Even Human Rights are negated if this is pitted by one group against another.

The rights of Indigenous Peoples is nothing

against the Rights of those

that are responsible for the existence of the country.

What we have here is a conflict between INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS .

One’s rights should be pitted against another.

And as in the case of Indigenous Peoples,

their rights as a group should not be pitted against the majority.

One’s individual  rights supersede any law, treaty or agreement.

A non-indigenous individual’s rights should therefore be pitted

against one indigenous person’s rights.

Not one group against another.

(Confusing, EH?

Not so if you think of YOUR  rights!)

The Huawei Test case Continues

And so the Meng Wanzhou case continues

with explicable consequences

like a new intelligence gathering by abductions.

Canada detains Meng without possession of

valid American extradition papers,

China detains two Canadian citizens,

and Russia enters the scene by abducting Whalen.

These abductions would be more pleasant

should they intend to use vodka, or rice wine, or cognac

instead of water for boarding; in which case the confessions

would be more sufferable and confounded merely

by a few hiccups here and there.

But all kidding aside, this is a test of

how effective the much-vaunted American sanctions can go.

now, it thus appear that American sanctions are effective only

if the countries cooperate in ganging up on the sanctioned party.

Otherwise, like in this instance, only Canada will cooperate in applying

American sanctions.

This is but natural for Canada to cooperate because this is one

country that keeps its word as regards agreements

and treaties which someone we know just breaks with a whim.

American sanctions are not punishable by detentions

and the rest of the world know this.

it is , however, open season for Canadian citizens for abductions.

Sad it is but this is true.

This country knows no enemies.

As a consequence, it has now become a whipping boy

for the rest of the world.

The ugly part of it is that Canada does not fight back.

It has even deferred itself from building

military grade weapons for its own defense.

But iof Canada really wants to end this test case

it should force the Americans to provide papers

to start the extradition trial of Meng Wangzhou.

Remember also that the more the extradition trial is delayed

the more money the lawyers concerned earn in fees

and this for just doing nothing but wait on their haunches.

How much more problems will the Justice Ministry

subject the country to?

Even the Federal Courts are troublesome!

And grandstanding, too.

I give you my first quotable quip—

You take-a my toy top,

I take-a your toy yoyo.

You give me back my toy top,

I think of giving your toy yoyo.
